Classic Textures - Remastered

Whilst playing the HD remastered version i couldn't help but feel the textures weren't crisp enough, in the original game I know this was part of a design decision so the buildings and units would have more contrasting details however it's a bit too drastic for my tastes and also now with the additional lighting and especially ambient occlusion around the buildings it seems uneccessary. So i've reworked all of the textures to appear more crisp and redone the farm textures drawing inspiration from the original. Hope you guys enjoy and be sure to comment your opinions/suggestions.

The changes:
For this pack I have reworked all the original ground textures using high pass filters and some sublte painting and colour tweaks. As well as this I have also redone the Farm and Coastline textures from scatch including the blend from shore to coast. The water saturation has also been dropped 25%.

Update 28/04/2013: Tweaked some of the noise detail in the grass

Good stuff. Enhances the detail found in the original textures without looking out of place. Been using this for a while and I have no inclination to use another pack. Hope to see further updates and refinements!

I can't tell the difference.

I had to close steam, manually delete the game folder and then reinstall the game and mod to get it to work.

It looks great, nice work. :)

Have you tried restarting steam once subscribed? I've found sometimes with the steamworkshop i have to do this when subscribing to new game mods.

Failing that I have another mod "StormAndys Textures" which replaces the same texture files you could also try switching to that and seeing in the textures update then switching back to this.

Doesn't work for me.
